The board won't be as fast and will be more prone to scratches.

Like mentioned in the post above, the main thing is it won't be as fast as a sintered base. I don't think the lifespan is much different. It is said that sintered bases are more durable, but I haven't really noticed much of a difference.

Sintered bases are WAY more durable. I have ridden over the same rock patches as my friends, come out with minor scratches while they got core shots.

edit: to add to that, I believe the lifespan would be longer on a sintered board based on it's durability.

That's what I've read/heard, but haven't experienced for myself. Although the big difference may be that I ride my sintered board much harder than my old board that was extruded. That board lasted a long time without any major damage but I never took it through the type of terrain I ride on my newer board.

extruded may last longer cause hey are real easy to repair, but if u fuck up a sintered (which is harder to do) it will be very hard to repair so i duno bout lasting longer, prob both round the same if maintained.

the extruded is softer, slower (but if u keep an extruded waxed properly you shouldn't notice a speed diff)
extruded u must wax more often in general. i have a sintered on my agent and i find i have to wax it like every time i go, but i am riding man made shit so, duno...

Do you mean a hot wax or the regular kind of waxing that i could do myself in 5 mins? and how often is regular? im guessing probably more now that its nearing the end of the season...
